RIDGELAND, MS., – Crye-Leike, REALTORS is proud to announce that Agent Gloria Thompson has earned her certification as an Accredited Staging Professional by the Home Staging company.  Thompson is based out of the company’s Ridgeland branch office located at 731 S. Pear Orchard in Ridgeland, Mississippi.


“Due to the current market conditions, I decided to specialize in staging and provide this service to all my sellers,” said Thompson.  “Staging is a critical component of selling the house, almost as important as pricing a home for sale, plus the excitement and appreciation I get from my clients makes it all worthwhile.


Thompson says she and her clients know a “Staged Home” will sell faster, especially in a slower market, and that is why she has invested her time and energy in becoming an accredited home stager.  Thompson received her accredited training from Barb Schwarz at the nationally recognized, Home Staging Company.


“I enjoy working side by side with clients to make the distinction between the home they live in and the house they are selling,” said Thompson.  “I advise my clients on the five factors that impact a sale which are; condition, price, marketing, competition and STAGING.”


Thompson is a licensed residential sales associate in Mississippi assisting buyers and sellers in and around Hinds, Rankin and Madison counties.  She is a residential specialist with a focus on Staging Properties.  Thompson is a member of the Jackson Association of Realtors (JAR) and the National Association of Realtors (NAR).



“My staging credentials compliment the best marketing tools in the industry that Crye-Leike provides me as a Realtor,” said Thompson.  “I look forward to providing my clients with a comprehensive market analysis and giving them an edge in this highly competitive market.”


Thompson lives in Madison and has two step children and one son, Denise Perfette (36), Scot Thompson (34) and Bradley Thompson (22).  She’s a member of Madison United Methodist Church and in her free time enjoys boating and golf.
